You might take a look at Hanks Belts, as they make some very sturdy belts.

That's what I did- bought 2 to try out. Like them a lot so far... waiting for a few more washings to be sure nothing strange surfaces with wear... them I'll order several styles and colors to compliment my work attire.

Ok so I bought a gun belt from gunbelts.com i looked around and i saw this thicker belt that the description said I'd love it if I carried a full size (which I do) so I got it. now it's a 1.5" belt and the holster clip I have on my holster fits 1.5" belts. everything should work out right? WRONG. the belt is so thick (not wide, but THICK) that th elip of my holster clip will not fit around the belt... Any idea on how to bend the lip to a 90 degree angle or maybe a bit wider so i coul dmake it fit or will i just have to get a new holster?

well NVM guys i solved my problem. took my dremel tool and ground the lip off to where it makes a 90 degree angle. it fits nicely now and still hooks on to where it won't come off.

Lighten up. It was a joke about how to carry a fat guy.

Ok... too late. I was about to suggest replacing the rubber grommet with a thicker one to see if that would work.

AHHhh. That was very good. Better than any modification. Hope it all works out for you.

yeah everything works out now. they even added wider belt loops for my mag holster at no extra charge. and sent me various sizes of clips and loops. very very excellent customer service.
